    Hello,

    Yet another dagger listed.

    I believe this one will be a parts or post war hirschfanger.
    The slotted screw fitting on top of the pommel is screaming post war... however, the oval makers mark is saying period era correct for 3rd Reich. I don’t know about the stag grips or scabbard with match numbers.

    The emblem on the handle is present (But not shown). Blade isn’t triple etched. Thoughts?

    Two more of the blade... green washer present too. Price tag is a little high, but not bad if original 3rd Reich.

    I think Gerrit is lost in that " Bermuda Triangle " in his bedroom ....time to rescue him and bring him back to the forum.
    I will send a WRF Bat Signal in the sky for him to reply.

    Hahah thanks Larry...

    I’ve been researching this hirschfanger myself. I believe the stag grips are going to be post war... as well as the slotted screw fitting on top of the pommel. Everything else looks good I think... as long as the scabbard is green. It looks black in the photos but seller said it has a greenish tint.

    Still would love to hear Gerrit’s take on it.

    back from a few triangles

    You dont want this HF in your collection, like my beloved Pat Benatar sings: you better run!
    This logo is etched, the entire dagger is imo postwar.
    There is a bit of a golden rule regarding Hirschfänger pre 1945, the logo most be stamped, and not etched.
    There are a few exceptions, for example Pack always etched their logo's.
    I have owned several Hörster DJS HF, all with stamped logos.

    Ahhh thanks Gerrit!

    I didn’t know about the stamped/ etched logo. I was leaning towards it being post war, at least a few parts anyway.

    Thanks again, see you at the triangle! Grin

    Thanks also to Larry!
